Auckland has the largest Polynesian population in the world. The stats from the last census in fact show that the fastest growing ethnic group(s) are Asian followed closely by Maori and Polynesian. There have been many studies pointing to the 'browning' of Auckland. In fact the second most spoken language after English is Samoan.
I'm not an expert on Australia and it's cultural makeup but know enough to say that in my opinion, comparatively speakingâ€¦..Maori vs Aboriginal rights whatever that means are vastly different. I think a good indicator of a nations cultural makeup should't be confined to just who owns a business.
